STEVE: A DOCU-MUSICAL features music by Colin Summers and Andrew Eckel. The show was written by Colin Summers with lyrics by Steve.
Colin and Steve have never met. Colin is a twenty-something musician living in Brooklyn. Steve is a retired railway clerk in Australia who writes eccentric books, lyrics, scripts and countless emails to Colin. Over the last five years, they have written over 100 songs together... and passed over 6,000 emails between them.
STEVE is a deeply personal, widely accessible and delightfully entertaining show combining documentary stylings with hilariously clever songs co-written by Colin and Steve. This story challenges our preconceptions of what it means to be an artist, cyber-identity and cyber-friendship.
Colin Summers is a Brooklyn based musician, composer, actor and writer with a strong interest in creating interdisciplinary performance. Colin has had a hand in creating nationally touring theater with Movement Workshop Group, and done acting and music composition for acclaimed indie films The Unspeakable Act and Swim Little Fish Swim. Colin also writes, records and performs regularly with his band Toys And Tiny Instruments.
